    From: Tiny Glow in the Dark Shark

    A type of pocket shark, this little dude takes advantage of our natural attraction to glow sticks and attracts its prey by glowing! How cool is that?

    Cute!

    Almost looks like a miniature sperm-whale's head from the angle in the picture.

    That's how you end up with the glowing jaguar shark.

    They found it while researching sperm whales. No clue as to the depth they were in.

    It looks more like a baby sperm whale than a shark:

    it does look like that like that but at birth sperm whales are about 12 ft long and weigh 2000 lbs so not holding it in your hand anytime soon.

    I was referring to the physical appearance of the tiny glow shark in the picture and not the physical size...

    Shine little glow-shark, glimmer, glimmer
    Shine little glow-shark, glimmer, glimmer
    Lead us like a good little swimmer
    Love's sweet voice is calling yonder

    Shine little glow-shark, glimmer, glimmer
    Hey, there don't get dimmer, dimmer
    Light the path below, above
    And lead us on to love!
